Yearly Olympia Dems magic act: $8 billion tax hike

WSRP Chairman Susan Hutchison sent out the following message on March 28:

The Democrats are performing their yearly magic act — providing the illusion of a budget without voting to pay for it.  Yes, the rabbits they pull out of the hat are just the same as before — huge payoffs to their special interests and dishonest accounting.

They want us taxpayers to hand them an extra $8 billion using a capital gains income tax.  The trap door in this income tax “on the rich” will catch all taxpayers by forcing everyone to provide income statements.  Guess what lies behind that curtain — a statewide income tax!

Chief magician Speaker Frank Chopp must think the voters are easily fooled.  While education should be our state’s priority, 97% of the Democrats’ proposed tax hikes would go to non-education programs!

In contrast, the REAL budget proposed last week by the Senate Republicans prioritizes education without raising taxes and without irresponsible spending.  More than 50% of the GOP budget goes to education, meeting the needs of our children.

Let’s hope the Democrats budget goes POOF!

 

Kim Wyman undergoing treatment for colon cancer

WSRP Chairman Susan Hutchison sent out the following message on March 27:

Our beloved friend and Secretary of State has announced today that she will be undergoing treatment for colon cancer (see her message below).  I’ve highlighted below the best news in this bad news: that this particular type of cancer is curable.

Even so, all cancer treatment is a tough battle and we hope and pray that the doctors and caregivers that surround Kim will be the most capable in their field.  Please join me in praying for her husband John, their two adult children and her devoted staff in the Secretary of State’s office who are deeply affected by this news.

Most of all, we pray that God will comfort and bless Kim through the rigors of treatment and recovery.  We put our trust in Him.

Secretary Wyman’s statement regarding her upcoming medical treatment

OLYMPIA – Washington Secretary of State Kim Wyman has a very optimistic prognosis after receiving a colon cancer diagnosis recently. She will be undergoing treatment over the next several weeks and released this statement today:

“As anyone who has gone through this situation knows, my family and I are experiencing all of the emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis, however I remain committed to my role as Secretary of State and will be able to continue performing my official duties during my treatment and recovery periods,” Wyman said.

“My doctors have told me this type of cancer is not only treatable – but curable – and I expect to make a full recovery after undergoing chemotherapy and radiation treatment for several weeks.

“As has been standard practice in this office, Assistant Secretary Mark Neary will assume responsibility for day-to-day operations when I am out of the office for treatment. When appropriate, Deputy Secretary Greg Lane may represent the office on my behalf.

“I am very positive about my plan of treatment and my prognosis, and will provide periodic updates from time to time.”

Secretary Wyman has asked for privacy during this time, and any inquiries about her progress may be directed through her executive staff.

DEMS! City Council raises property taxes, and wonders why rents are increasing

Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state. Read on!

In another display of Seattle Democrats’ complete lack of common sense and basic economics, the Seattle City Council voted yesterday to set up a “Renters’ Commission,” whose purpose is to stop rapidly rising rents in the city.

But setting up this commission won’t help a bit.  The real problem lies with the Mayor and the City Council.

Why are rents high?  Because Mayor Murray and the City Council have repeatedly pushed for higher property taxes, costly regulations on landlords, and restrictions on new housing construction.  The costs of all these are then passed on to renters in the form of higher rents!

How typical of Seattle politicians to create a huge problem through taxes, regulations and restrictions and then create a commission to solve the problem with more of the same.  How embarrassing!

DEMS! Hypocritical liberals ignore environmental disaster….

Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state. Read on!

Seattle environmentalists are ignoring an eco-catastrophe of raw human sewage.
 
Every day since February 9, when a power outage caused pumps to fail at Seattle’s government-run West Point Treatment Plant, tons of solid waste — raw sewage-fecal matter — has been pouring into Puget Sound.

The response from Seattle Democrats and environmentalists?

Nothing.  “Silence reigns as sewage spews into Puget Sound” reads a headline on the Seattle Times website.

Why the silence?  The radical environmentalists’ real target is economic growth and  private industry. So, when a government facility run by left-wing Democrats causes an ecological disaster, they don’t even care.

How hypocritical!  How harmful to Puget Sound and its delicate eco-systems!  How embarrassing for Seattle!

Do you agree with Bill O’Reilly about Jay Inslee?

Last night on Fox News, commentator Bill O’Reilly had some choice words for our state’s Governor regarding detention of illegal aliens.

O’Reilly said “the Governor is a dunderhead and I’m going to prove that to you,” blasting Inslee as “this idiot Governor of Washington state.”

We’re glad to know that the national media is catching on to our Governor who cannot govern because he’s too busy grandstanding on issues to please his far left wing base.

DEMS! Seattle voters shocked over tax hike after voting for higher taxes!

Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state.  Read on!

“The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other people’s money” said Margaret Thatcher.  If only she could comment on what is happening in Seattle as the costs of ST3 are coming crashing down on car owners and property owners who thought someone else was going to pay the $53 Billion!

Yes, Seattle voters are getting the message that you can win an election, but lose big when you close your eyes and vote for every well-funded initiative on the ballot.  They are now up in arms about increases of 300% for car tabs (based on MSRP car values).  Seattle voters are shocked to see that their property taxes (which will also show up as rent increases for apartment dwellers) have taken a huge jump.

It’s gotten so bad that King County is using taxpayer money to take out ads on Pandora and other radio outlets reminding people that their taxes are going up because they voted for them to do exactly that!  How embarrassing!

Yes, Seattle, when you keep voting for tax increases, eventually, the tax man cometh!  

 

DEMS! Will Democrats impose an income tax on Seattle?

Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state.  Read on!

Will the Democrats on Seattle’s City Council join Socialist City Councilwoman Kshama Sawant to impose an income tax on the citizens of Seattle?

Sawant is working with a leftist protest group called TrumpProofSeattle, whose goal is to use new taxes to maintain Seattle’s status as a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants.

“Trump has threatened to withhold federal funding to sanctuary cities,” TrumpProofSeattle says on their website. “This could raise $100 million/year in Seattle, set an example for other cities, and forge a path to tax justice in Washington State!”

Tax justice?  What’s just about blatantly breaking federal laws?  What’s just about imposing an income tax that 2/3rds of citizens oppose?

Despite the many times voters have said NO to an income tax, Seattle’s Democrats are among the only supporters of the tax.  They will be strongly inclined to go along with their Socialist colleague.  How embarrassing for Seattle!

Inspiring!

President Trump’s speech to Congress last night was inspirational, patriotic, and realistic.  According to the CNN poll, 78% gave it a positive rating.

(In case you missed the President’s speech, CLICK HERE to watch the video.)

The President said, “The time for small thinking is over, the time for trivial fights is behind us” as he looked directly at the Democrats who have slowed his cabinet appointments and vow to block his agenda.  The dour Democrats who even refused to applaud the wife of a fallen Navy Seal showed they are out of  touch with the America people!

The Democrats are determined to obstruct the President’s patriotic agenda, and they desperately want him to fail.  Your Washington State Republican Party is working hard every day for you.  Help us defend the President, and respect the will of the people.  Would you please donate $25, $50, $100 or more?
